Where are we going today?
Have you ever looked up at the birds and butterflies in the trees and thought "I wish I could be up in the treetops looking out all across the world".
Welcome to Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk!
The Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk is set in 30 private acres of beautiful rainforest complete with a babbling creek and fun rock pools. It also gives kids a great chance to explore their new eco-adventure where you get to see the rainforest canopies in a whole new light!
Your journey will start from the Rainforest Eco Gallery, where you will the make your way up to the spectacular elevated walkway through the middle and upper canopies.
Don't worry - the walkway is stable! (Safety is very important to them!) Then, you gradually descend into the lower canopy where you can check out all the fun points of interest like the butterfly lookout. If you stand really still, you might just get some little visitors come and sit on your shoulders!
The walk takes about 45 minutes, and after you have completed the course you will reach the amazing Cantilever. Don't know what that is? Be prepared! It's a 40m long bridge that hangs 30m above the valley floor, giving you spectacular views over the creek and the canopies themselves!
Don't forget your camera!
Once you make your way back to the Rainforest Eco Gallery, there is a great selection of information on all the rainforest fauna and flora so kids can learn about everything they have just experience. They can even check out the aquarium filled with freshwater fish!
You can enjoy the whole day at your own pace, but small hint - wear flat shoes, there will be a lot of walking!

my family have just driven for an hour to the skywalk. payed a high price for it. what a load of rubbish. the skywalk is a total waste of money and you have to do all the work yourself. steel walkway is fine for the short time your using it, then it finishes and your walking on rubble path until you get to the so called skywalk bit and that's crap too.
don't waste your money and spend the $63 admin fee on shopping. the local park is free!!!!!!!!!

It is a good scenic spot but not so impressive that could justify the admission fee. If it could expand to become a mini zoo to show real local animals, would be able to attract more young visitors.

I have done the Skywalk with my children several times now and I'm always impressed at how they maintain a consistently high level with everything in regards to customer satisfaction. It's a beautiful walk, easy for anyone to do, the parking is ample and the staff are always friendly and efficient. There is a lovely café also so you can enjoy a cool drink after walking through the beautiful rainforest.
I would recommend it to anyone wanting to have a relaxing day out exploring the Tamborine Mountain Rainforest.

Utter garbage. I get better scenery at my local council reserve bush land. This is not a rainforest. The bridge is too narrow, too crowded. you can't stop anywhere on the bridge part because no one can get past you. The look out is garbage, there's better scenery on the drive in. When you get to the bottom, there's a depressing little creek, i have no idea why that was made as a point of attraction. Go on one of the many free walks they are heaps better and free. It costs $20 per person and lasts about 20 minuets and only about 100 meters is actually...Read More

Very misleading and extremely expensive for what it is. Wanted my money back. The "sky walk" is just a metal bridge a few metres long to a overly commercialised bush walk, of which there are many much better and free walks only minutes away. Definitely do not recommend.
